Just got back from a 5 hr indoor fly-in here in NVA tons of fun. the Dr-I flew great I have the PZ P-51 in mine so it's pretty quiet. I also added the minor LG rigging and middle wing rigging.

Not done yet but getting there. Waiting for Jin to do a gun kit and I need to do some Kempf decals since I goofed up in my haste to paint and forgot to mask for them

Next build another Nieuport, a 17bis of the RNAS No. 6 Squadron C Flight Cdr. Ernest W. Norton's N3208I like the 17's wing and tail shape better than the 25-27 and I like the Lewis and Vickers guns they used. A good suggestion at the Fly-In for the top wing Lewis gun was to use micro magnets to hold it on that way it might not get damaged if it's whacked it or bumped.

Hey Dave sorry for my mix up excellent mods on your DR-I

Thanks Billy, Gene's been letting me know what your up to.

John in my haste to get this thing ready for the Fly-In I goofed up and forgot to mask the top and middle wing for the Kempf scheme. Now I have to make white decals (white decal paper is a pain, never really works right for me)

oh too bad!
I've been there

It looked like youwere going to cover the entire wing with printed tissue for the color and lettering

Pete - Another great looking plane! Where do you find the time?

I still need to add some details (Step, hand lifts, engine) but the markings are done.

Thanks, Pete. By the way, those aren't decals, they're hand cut from sign vinyl. Except for the wing crosses, which are printed on paper, then cut out and attached with spray adhesive. I liked using inkjet decal sheets, but the last few sets I've bought have been terrible, so I went with the vinyl.

Not a DR1 mod per se, but I like flying with the guys in formations of DR1's indoors so much I decided we need something to escort.

To scale - 4' wingspan.

Can you guess what it is?
